Several months before the end of the year, not only the sale of gingerbread at the discounters begins. Photographers, publishers and companies unaval the first calendars for the coming year. So the italian coffee producer lavazza and the easter-rich photographer manfred baumann already presented their calendars for 2017. They could hardly be different.
12 times naked skin
Under the motto "the erotic of the zodiac" is the new calendar of manfred baumann. For ten years, the vienna photographer published an essential calendar. This time he has taken the zodiac signs as an opportunity, between or closely treated thirteen ladies naked in the pin-up style and in black and white.
Baumann liked explanatory hubs away from the image of the "madchen photographers". So he does not pay only helmut newton to his role models, but also the landscape photographer ansel adams. In 2013, he has the photoband in the national geographic verlag "old world, new world" publishes the travel photographs of istanbul to new york. But the new calendar was allowed to stand rather in the tradition of his early work.
The baumbann calendar costs 25 euros and is directly in the online shop of the photographer.
Two times simple harvest workers
Another photo calendar has lavazza under the title we are what we live presented. The coffee producer sent the french photographer denis rouvre to asia, where he has portrayed simple harvest workers, which one sees her hard life partly very clearly. Each of the zwolf faces was a landscape receptacle.
The calendar was manufactured in collaboration with slow food, an organization created in italy, which wants to demand enjoyable, conscious and regional food. He is the third part of the photoproject earth defenders. The current calendar of 2016 shows environmental protectioners in central and sud america. The recordings come from the young canadian photographer joey lawrence. The year before, steve mccurry portrayed sustainable projects in africa.
The claim of the project is high: "the young ‘earth defenders’ teaches us that we are able to renew the humanity on the righteous and sustainable way without getting resources, and at the same time progressing the economic development of local communities", so francesca lavazza, corporate image director at the italian manufacturer.
Thematically, the new lavazza calendar is very far away from earlier ies photographed, among other things, helmut newton and ellen’s photographed by urswerth and have also shown a lot of naked skin. He should be sold on the italian slowfood shop.
